“A new generation of music recommendation services is emerging, aimed at helping listeners navigate the often bewildering mass of music now legally available online.

One of the most ambitious of these services, dubbed Soundflavor, is launching Thursday. The service, produced by a company called Siren Systems, promises to deconstruct songs into more than 700 component parts, and then make music recommendations based on how listeners’ tastes match these musical elements.”

I'm a passionate, long-time lover of Apple products, and was a civil draftsman and graphic designer before creating the iLounge web site. My prior projects include work for The Los Angeles Times' LATimes.com, and the company Creative Domain, where I developed websites for clients including Columbia Pictures, Disney, Fox Studios, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers. As the Publisher of iLounge, I direct the site's community forums, photo galleries, iPod User Group, and general business affairs, which have grown under my watch to over sixteen million page views every month. I'm happily married with one daughter, one dog (Rocket the Wonderdog), one cat (Ferris), many iPods, iPhones, iPads, and two turntables.
